There's a lot going on in the birthy world at present. Not much of it is positive and I see things getting a LOT worse before they get better for the women of Australia. Some days it's really hard and I wonder if it's all worth the effort.
Then I find my "tribe" - the women who remind me that we are fighting the good fight. The women who are standing up and being seen to be saying - women matter, birth matters, autonomy matters. I see the women who are standing up and taking responsibility for their birth and their babies. I see the women who are asking questions, who are learning, who want better for their families.

Thank you beautiful, strong, loving, supportive women. YOU are my inspiration and I grateful to you today and everyday. xx
What is the gratitude challenge? I set myself this challenge as a way of maintaining some mindfulness and gratitude, but also to help me take time each and every day to focus on my writing.
I would welcome anyone else who wants to join the challenge. The rules are simple: Start at a and work your way through to z. You must do one each day, include a photo and they must be at least 2 paragraphs - after all the idea is to work on your writing not just your gratefulness.
